Tutoring is offered by LRC Peer Tutor Program. These tutors have been identified to have a high level of proficiency in the target language by their respective language program, and are available for students who are currently enrolled in a U-M language class.
Various student language clubs also offer tutoring at no cost to UM students.

Tutors, please be aware of internet safety. We recommend only accepting work in the local community where there is less of a chance for fraud. We have had reports of tutors being solicited to work with students outside of the US, which seem to involve scams. For more information on possible internet scams, visit the IC3 website. Additionally, please be conscious about giving out personal telephone numbers or addresses; we also strongly suggest meeting tutors/tutees in a public place.
